Dredging and excavation operations in the Kallioholma cable landing area for the Tahkoluoto offshore wind farm are set to begin next week.

Jan De Nul Group is in charge of dredging, seabed construction work and the installation of foundations and wind turbines.

The seabed preparation works started two months ago and included dredging and excavation to prepare the seabed for the foundations and subsea cables.

The underground cable and substation will be installed by the next summer, with foundations and subsea cable scheduled for installation in spring and summer 2017.

Jan De Nul has worked in the Baltic Sea before, building an offshore wind farm in Karehamn, Sweden, in 2013.
